Author: Tom Frist
Peter Johnson, a twenty-nine year old aspiring international correspondent and novelist, travels to Turkey in 2014 to research his Turkish, Armenian, and Syriac ancestors who were both perpetrators and victims of the 1915 massacres and deportations in that country. Using the vivid memoir of his great-grandmother as a guide, Peter teams up with his beautiful Muslim cousin, Ashti Kaya, to follow the route of his ancestors’ deportation through Turkey and Syria to their final safety in America. Along the way, Peter and Ashti learn much about the history of their families and of the region and become embroiled in the rescue of Armenian and Syriac Christians from ISIS in war-torn Syria. Profoundly affected by his experiences, Peter comes to realize that his ancestors’ capacity for good and evil is also mirrored within himself. “...A timely book that gives a ring-true picture of the fate of five generations of an Armenian family after deportation. The suspenseful story is both provocative and insightful and is a must-read for travelers and students.” —Hank Ackerman, former Associated Press International Correspondent and Bureau Chief

God is asking His church to see the wounded soldiers of the cross through His eyes and asking the ever-important question to those engaged in this battle called life: “In your opinion, can the fallen church members ever be used by Me in the pulpits and ministry again?” We are being challenged by the Most High God to restore the fallen soldiers of the cross in the spirit of meekness, considering themselves also vulnerable to temptation. As time draws near to the final call and the church prays for an end-time revival, it is time to become the revival we are praying for.
Furthermore, the connection between the divine origin of the new human nature
and the possibility of obedience to divine law is made even more clearly here

The Providential work of God flowed Westward and formed One Nation under God - America! The Great Awakening in the 1740s prepared American hearts for Liberty, severing Colonists from the European godlessness, replacing it with a Christ-centered culture. Can These Bones Live is a moving account of the Providence of God in Early America. The relevance of knowing historic truth is absolutely vital in maintaining the Rights and Freedoms fought for in the Revolutionary War. The muscle around the backbone of these United States has dried up. America has both forgotten and forsaken the old ways: It needs the breath of God to live again. Walking in the footsteps of our Forefathers gives light to the path we must take, making history understandable and important in our lives, and in the future life of the nation. David P Pett was the fifth of eight children; he was born during the Great Depression into a humble farm family that respected the Bible. Born Again in 1950, David became an avid student of the Word of God. Graduating from St. Paul Bible College, he pastored several churches. He also took a refresher course at Western Evangelical Seminary near Portland, Oregon. His love for music and history found their way into his writings and ministry. From his early ministry on, David had a passion for writing, generating articles in magazines and weekly newspapers. He published a monthly newspaper [THE BRIDGE], wrote two Christian History Manuals, and a monthly newsletter entitled WHY, all with a vigorous commitment to serve God and the Church, the Body of Jesus Christ.

The story of the Bible starts with the simple statement, "In the beginning, God created . . ." From that first sentence of Genesis, the story of salvation unfolds in strange and wonderful mingling of the commonplace and the miraculous, the human and the transcendent. But if you were born after the baby boom, chances are the Bible seems more like an item of passing interest than a book of depth and meaning for the twenty-first century. If you're not familiar with the Bible, it can be difficult to put into perspective the puzzle of kings and prophets, giants and seven-headed dragons, shepherd boys and itinerant preachers, Old Testament law and New Testament grace. Meet the Bible introduces you to the full, epic sweep of the Bible -- the characters, the places, the times, the stories, and the meanings of this Book of books -- and shows you that even the most obscure passage can hold relevance for your life once you understand what to look for. Award-winning writer Philip Yancey and author Brenda Quinn are your guides on this one-year reading tour of the Bible. Each day's reading includes Scripture, contemporary commentary, and questions for contemplation -- all designed to offer insight into how the passage fits into the overall story of the Bible, and how it can speak to your life today. Meet the Bible takes you through the twists and turns of the Bible's many narratives, the high points and the low points, the good characters and the bad, as well as the eternal thoughts and descriptions of God and his Son, Jesus Christ. Here are stories to remember, images of real people and circumstances closer to your own life than you've ever imagined. By the time you've finished the year's worth of reading, you'll have gained a panoramic view of the whole Bible and a firm understanding of its ideas and teachings. If you've never read the Bible, or hardly know the Bible, or would just like to read the Bible in a fresh new way, Meet the Bible offers an inspiring mix of timeless wisdom and contemporary insight that will cause faith to ignite within you. Direct excerpts from Scripture give readers a panoramic tour of the Bible’s key passages, personalities, events, and ideas as the Old Testament sweeps into the New Testament. Culturally relevant commentary from Quinn and Yancey sheds light on each day’s passage, examining the twists and turns of the Bible’s many narratives, the high points and the low points, the good characters and the bad, as well as the eternal thoughts and descriptions of God and his Son. Reflections every five days provide life application for the week’s Scripture readings.

“A work of stunning originality . . . Nothing quite like it has appeared in years.”—Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography In this groundbreaking book, Jerome Segal offers a fresh and vigorous reexamination of the oldest part of the Bible. What if we knew nothing about Judaism or Christianity and one day picked up the first six books of the Bible? How could we possibly understand them? Who is God? Who are the Israelites? What is the relationship between God and humanity? Segal maintains that to approach the Bible from this perspective—one framed by the story of the Israelites’ fidelity to Joseph—is to find something unexpected: an account of the human condition that reads like an existential novel about the struggle of mankind against the unpredictable and often unwarranted wrath of God. A radically new way of understanding the Bible and a brilliant exploration of it, Joseph’s Bones is a rarity in Biblical interpretation: brilliant, rigorously argued, and thoroughly original. “Joseph’s Bones makes [an] audacious argument. . . . Reading the Bible as a novel about the struggle between God and humankind, Segal produces a work of interpretation that is itself novelistic in its humanistic vision and emotional force.”—Naomi Seidman, author of Faithful Renderings “Perceptive and intelligent.”—Booklist “Arrestingly original.”—Tikkun “Compelling . . . transforming.”—Forward

Drawn from Lee Strobel's own experiences as a former atheist engaged in a thorough search for truth, the articles and notes throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible provide a solid explanation of where the historical and scientific evidence point - toward the existence of a compassionate Creator God and his Son, Jesus, the Savior. The Case for Christ Study Bible features more than 500 notes and articles, including: A.) The Case for a Creator: highlighting the wonders of creation and demonstrating how the scientific evidence supports belief in an all-powerful Creator. B.) The Case for the Bible: exploring the character of the Bible, the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates scripture, and apparent contradictions. C.) The Case for Christ: investigating Jesus' claims, Messianic identity, deity, and resurrection. D.) And much more. The Good News of the Gospel transformed the life of this former atheist. It can do the same for others who commit to examining the evidence for themselves.

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.
